Glasgow Doctoral School in Emerging Technologies (GD-SET)
Considering the unprecedented change in complexity and functionality of devices and systems supporting the ICT revolution it is clear is that the coming decades need a new generation of scientists, technologists and engineers with novel and multi-disciplinary skills.
GD-SET will provide first-class training in emerging ICT technologies to support the next generation of world-changers by providing students direct access to world-leading facilities. Our vision will be delivered by an integrated programme of training and research, spanning materials, device design, component manufacture and system integration.
The fundamental ethos of this CDT, a beacon for motivated and talented graduates, is that genuinely differentiating ICT solutions result from working across the boundaries that exist in the traditional materials/devices/systems supply chain. We will nurture and develop the research engineers and scientists of this future in an environment specifically designed to:
- Support truly innovative and creative ICT device development
- Promote cross-disciplinary thinking
- Emphasise the importance of component and systems integration
- Create manufacturable solutions from the outset
All of our 3.5 year doctoral projects are in collaboration with high-tech industrial partners and will provide opportunities for industrial engagement.
Research projects will start on day one, with additional training highlighted on a case-by-case basis for each student distributed across the first 2 years.
Fully funded studentships will be available each year, forming cohorts that will collaborate on research and other activities, including a yearly workshop/conference event. Supervision will be provided, jointly with the partner company, by academics bridging Physics, Engineering and Computing Science.
